    O’Reilly, the biggest star on cable TV news, will walk away from Fox with as much as $25 million, a severance figure set by the contract he signed only last month, a source close to the negotiations confirmed to The Post.



    Gee, think he'll survive? He's 67 and can collect SS too.

    Never liked him. Apparently Fox had reasons to suspect the allegations are true. Glad he got his comeuppance.

    I was surprised FOX let the complaints mount up and apparently did little in training let alone firings & suspensions. Again I remember going through mandatory anti harassment training as early as the 1980s working in corporate America. That being said think about all the lower level employees that get harassed and get nothing but a fired or reprimanded boss along with a little whistle blower protection for a while.

    I wonder if the show personalities who get individual contracts have to go through the same HR training the average hourly employee must. Or maybe getting an individual contract makes them a quasi contractor and not core employee exempting them from a lot of workplace policy.

    I never watched him either. Apparently that behavior was tolerated there - Roger Ailes was guilty of the same thing. I suspect O'Reilly let his fame go to his head and thought he was untouchable because of it.

    What I don't understand is why employers don't write a clause in their golden parachute contracts that says you don't get said golden parachute if you are terminated for cause, or if you bail because you know you will be terminated.

    At the salary he was getting I suspect he was in a position to dictate the terms of his contract... that's a different world than most of us know. What did he get, wasn't it a year's salary of $25M?

    And now, there's talk of Sean Hannity being on the chopping block for the same thing!

    I thought his series on the Revolution was fabulous.
